Turkish Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay inaugurated a Turkish cultural center in Bucharest on Nov. 14.
Günay opened the Yunus Emre Turkish Culture Center in the Romanian capital and said culture was the strongest bridge between different nations.
“We are now more hopeful that we can have a closer cooperation with Romania thanks to the Yunus Emre Turkish Culture Center,” Gunay said during the ceremony.
Earlier in the day, Günay also opened another Yunus Emre Culture Center in the Balkan country’s coastal city of Constanta.
“The Yunus Emre Culture Center in Constanta is the 17th of such center the Yunus Emre Institute has opened in the world, and I believe that number will go up as high as 25 by the end of 2012 with new centers in Paris, Berlin, Delhi and Moscow,” Gunay told reporters during the opening ceremony.
Gunay said the Yunus Emre Culture Center in Constanta would also serve as a tourism office to promote Turkish tourist sites
